It has, we are going to play ourselves out of the #1 pick though.

I'm glad the Braves won't get the 1st pick. As of now, it doesn't sound like there's a consensus #1, and I'd rather not pay the extra money for picking first.

I'd sure like to see Swanson or Albies shoot out of the box like Trea Turner has for the Nats. He's killing the Braves today.

i dont mind not getting the 1st pick. right now we have the 2nd pick and are 3.5 games from the 3rd pick. who are some of the top prospects for the draft?

and i love that some of the teams we traded with recently are right there with us.

Angels- 62-75
Padres- 57-80
D-Backs- 58-79

Gonna be funny when Dansby hits one out of the park and it's dubbed his first outside the park HR.

Folty's fastballs have been consistently 98 MPH with an occasional 99. Strassburg's been 95-96. Looks like Strass hurt himself throwing a fastball to Folty. Not a good sign for the Nats.

Swanson hits one 400 feet for his first outside the park homer - against Lucas Giolito - who was considered the number 1 pitching prospect in baseball coming into the season. He's looked like just a mediocre prospect with his fastball only in the 89-91 range. He does not look ready for prime time.

Edit - now Giolito's hitting 92-93 MPH on his fastball, but still - Folty's stuff looked much better than his.

Mets win 6-4, Braves had a 4-0 lead and Cabrera blew it out of the pen.

Mets won as an underdog tonight.

John Gant takes the mound for us tomorrow. NYM are favored.

Braves trade for P Josh Collmenter from the Cubs and P Joe Wieland from the Mariners. Both teams will receive cash from the Braves.
